I can confirm this is the problem :D

I think a change to the xerces buildfile is in order. What happens is:

     <antcall target="xsltc.copy-deps-jar">
       <param name="param_unless" value="xsltc.bcel_jar.not_needed" />
       <param name="param_jar_name" value="${}" />

notice the "" instead of the "bcel.jar". Attached is a 
patch which should allow the override to work. Can some xalan committer 
check this and commit it? (CCing xalan-dev; please cc the gump list on 
the way back ;)

An alternative is to have gump call the "unbundledjar" target and 
reference the jar that generates. Since this will also likely remove 
stuff like jlex from the classpath (unless projects reference xalan with 
inherit="all"), I haven't made this change yet as it will likely break 
things so needs testing. Patch attached though; still a good idea to do
